Private English Lessons Istanbul
Search for work in Istanbul- round 6

In the final round of my search for work in Istanbul, I netted my first private student.

He is a young Turk who wants to go to England to work and needs to improve his spoken English. He wants me to teach him for two hours a night, every night.

It is too bad that I already decided to leave Istanbul in one week.

If this fellow emailed me a week ago, I may be singing a different tune. But now, the Road is open, and it is time to travel down it.

I published this post just to let people know that it IS possible to find private students for language instruction in Istanbul, and that it IS possible to make a good living as a roving English instructor in this country.

This prospective student was willing to pay me 20 Lira an hour/ 40 a lesson. This is almost $30. It would not have been too bad to have made $30 a day here.

Too late now. Traveling on.
